to the president of the united states because david petraeus was a key part of the president's foreign policy team. i'm not talking about guilt or innocence. i'm saying he's under a cloud. i have great admiration for david petraeus. i urged him to run for president. i worked with him. he's a tremendous patriot. but once he came under this scope of the investigation, they had to have -- they should have notified the president because david petraeus was involved in some of the most sensitive negotiations around the world. >> the "wall street journal" is reporting as you know that holder, the attorney general, knew about it in september. >> first of all, i think it should have been earlier than that because this investigation started a few months before that but assume it's september. at that stage, the attorney general should have immediately gone to the president. it's the president that runs foreign policy, not the attorney general. >> do you think politics was at play here, not wanting to do this before the election? >> that could have been. if that's the case it was a real dereliction of duty be

from the increasingly vocal feminists who demanded more of a role in government policy. she was a woman he could trust to do only what he expected her to do. pat's foreign traveling did more than feed her desire for a venture visiting new places, it was a way of reconnecting with her husband and the team of old. he had never been more a part of his life and work than when they traveled together during the vice-presidential years. the circumstances unchanged. now they traveled with a huge entourage of aides, security personnel and reporters and feelings toward the u.s. had hardened over the years but her husband's faith and her abilities demonstrated by his willingness to send her off by herself must have gratified her. ec's the opportunities to prove herself. her trip to peru in 1970 he penalize her value as a foreign ambassador. on may 31st, 1970, and earthquake measuring 7.75 on the richter scale devastated half of peru killing at least 50,000 people and displacing hundreds of thousands of others. mudslides followed the initial quake causing further damage. homeless, injured and starv

as much oil as it does currently, perhaps for energy to be such a focal point of its foreign policy won't be so large. and already you have exactly within the oil and gas industry pushing the case for shale on the basis that it would save the country a lot of money on overseas military expenditure. >> if you take in that oil, shale gas together, how much is that revolutionizing the american economy and also the global gas and oil industry itself? >> we're already seeing some big impacts in terms of when you see home consumers shifting from diesel to heat their homes in the u.s. to gas, we've seen a lot of shifting and that's certainly impacted oil demand in the u.s. but perhaps the real game changer could be yet to come. there is a lot of talk about natural gas vehicles. we're already seeing moves on that. the figures that the iea is putting out today, these really don't take in a major shift towards natural gas as a transportation fuel. p but a lot of people in the u.s. are predicting this could happen and that's on the basis oil remains reasonably expensive and gas is very cheap. if t
agents removed items from broadwell's home. foreign policy expert michael o'hanlon has known petraeus and paula for years. >> paula's a pretty great person, a person with amazing interests in our country's security. >> reporter: broadwell, shown here in afghanistan, embedded on an intelligence mission in 2010, had unprecedented access to petraeus as she researched her book, later calling petraeus her mentor. >> as a sort of academic mentor of mine, if you will. he's proud that i've been able to do this. >> reporter: while some former aides to broadwell describe her as calculating, o'hanlon says her family life in north carolina with her husband scott and two children tell a different story. >> however big a mistake she's made and it's huge, that this is a person who worked hard, worked hard to raise her kids, worked hard to do a good job with the book. >> reporter: there is another woman deeply affected by this scandal and that's holly petraeus, general petraeus' wife of more than 30 years. petraeus' former aides tell me it is an understatement to say that she is infuriated right now.
heidi, the environment clearly a global challenge, clearly a part of the foreign policy. how does it fit into the economic statecraft? >> it fits into a lot of different things the state department is working on. what we as a relatively new office of seven months and only a few people have been working on are much more than the sort of geographic priorities that the secretary has highlighted, so i probably wouldn't be the best person to speak to this department with a whole host of environmental issues. a lot more time on the year autozone and the relationship and then there's a little bit of a list from the economic analysis perspective that we tend to spend most of our time on. >> all of the subjects but maybe everybody else would like a chance to do that, too. questions? i think there is a microphone here. is there another mic? going once -- if people don't have questions i will ask them. okay. >> the council of the land that. one of the things that we observed both in the atlanta environment and looking at the global companies that has to do with our competitive edge advantage in col
: putting them in a bag? bill: rock through the window. martha: all right. back to larger foreign policy issues now because iran is starting to flex even more military muscle. state tv announced massive air drills that will start this weekend. the war games are set to cover nearly all of eastern iran and will show off the country's arsenal of jet fighters, drones and air defense systems. leland vittert is live in jerusalem. what does this mean for the region? >> martha, hard to tell whether the iranians are this to drum up support within their own country or try to scare a lot of folks here around the region about the possibility of an israeli strike on iran. typically from the war games we don't see any new military hardware being shown off. this does involve 8,000 iranians troops here. the other thing it does, it raises the fears and the price at negotiating table. if the iranians feel they show off more and more military might, they have a better chance to sit down with americans and other western allies around the negotiating table they may get more for giving up nuclear programs tha
foreign policy because presidents have a lot more unilateral movement, authority in that zone, and so you get a lot of important things. ronald reagan cut a very important deal with mikhail gorbachev. president clinton almost got a middle east peace deal. so looking at how we deal with iran and even the unforeseen challenges overseas is going to be really important. >> you've written a book about thomas jefferson, your latest biography. how is thomas jefferson relevant today beyond the obvious that he was the founder of the country, why should we still be interested about thomas jefferson's life in 2012? >> because he would have totally understood the washington -- john boehner, harry reid, and barack obama. he was a tall, cool, cerebral president who won re-election who was actually really good at politics even though he didn't want to act as though he was. so there are some similarities with president obama. jefferson was the greatest politician of the early american republic, and he understood how to get things done. in a ferociously partisan atmosphere he knew how to be a pragmatist,
